stress in school

get a level two an you've done it
they say
get a minimum of four and you've done it
they say
being in a lesson is doing you good
they say
they say all these things
but in my mind
i'm crumbling
in my mind
i'm failing
how can I be passing
if my pages are rivers of tears
how can I be passing
if I cant sleep
because I'm scared of failing
they tell me that im
"doing amazing"
"coping really well"
well why am I sat in my lessons
unable to concentrate
"where is your work"
"you have to sit this exam"
"it determines your whole course"
the pressure builds
the pressure builds
the pressure builds
but how can I
when the blood is pumping
and the tears are falling
and I can't breathe
and I can't sit this exam
and I can't do this
all subjects that I need
yet struggle to get through
child development
shouldn't they know best
how children feel under pressure
